One of the fantastic things about Go is the ease with which we can execute concurrent tasks using goroutines and channels. But using goroutines and channels in production env without proper context on how they behave can cause some serious effects.

Well, we faced one such impact where we had…


We all know Django is an awesome framework that provides a default admin interface based on the models. …


Things I try to cover in this article

  • What, When, and How to use a UDF.
  • A real-world scenario where we fit in UDF.
  • How to write, register, execute a UDF in Aerospike Context.

What is a UDF?

UDF means User Defined Functions which means the database has to run…

Out of hundreds of optimizations that a developer thinks of, reducing the docker image size will be given the least priority. So did we.

As a result, our docker image started to weigh around 2.4 GB in size which indirectly resulted in our developer’s productivity. …


If there is one big transition that took place in the past decade or so in terms of application development style and deployment patterns then it has to be migration from Monolithic application development to Microservices.

The latter had provided us with various advantages by splitting the bigger application into…


When you ask a developer, what are the two key things that are required for better performance of an application, the answer will surely be

  • Number of CPU Cores.
  • Application RAM.

When it comes to monolithic architecture, we estimate the total CPU and RAM required for an application and pick…


Working for an E-commerce company with a pretty huge customer base, the primary thing that we always keep in our mind while we code is to keep it performant enough to serve huge traffic.

As a developer, we benchmark the application with lakhs of requests and try to come up…


Introduction

One primary factor that attracts the end-user is how quickly the application responds back to the user request. Applications perform pretty well when the traffic is low but things start failing once the load increases on the application.

Before taking the application to production, there will be rigorous benchmark testing…


With a rapid transition from Monolithic application development to Microservices based application development, communication between microservices has become a crucial and core component. We need some sort of common language pattern where all dependent microservices should be able to communicate irrespective of programming language.

It all started off with XML…


In continuation of my previous article where I’ve detailed on the limitations of goroutines, in this article, I would like to share how we achieved 70 million sets to Aerospike Database in 30 minutes by leveraging the entire system Cores with the help of Go Worker Pool Pattern.
